I love spring when everything in the garden is waking up. There is nothing more rewarding to me than digging in the dirt, planting and witnessing the rebirth of my flowers in the spring. I am always on the look out for flowers with long bloom times and/or interesting foliage that don't require deadheading! I have a large shade garden (my favorite) and smaller sunny gardens around our property. My husband finally built me a greenhouse, which has significantly cut down his "honey do" lists! (He's a smart man!) I have a large grass (&dandelions) covered slope that I am beginning a plan for. It slopes down to a lake, and I want it to be beautiful, but don't want to be a slave to it. I have finally graduated and come to realize the beauty of foliage. I want to have a blend of foliage, grasses, evergreens and perennials that have interest all year round. My thought is more of a rock garden and not retaining walls, which to me look sterile and un-natural.
